President Barack Obama is returning yet again to the Bay Area in early June to raise money for Democrats in the U.S. Senate, according to party officials.

He was last here in April, when he attended  Democratic fundraisers in San Francisco and on the Peninsula.

Obama will be attending fundraising events on June 6 in Palo Alto  and Portola Valley on behalf of the Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee.

The President’s trip will include a 5 p.m. reception at the Palo  Alto home of tech entrepreneurs Marci and Mike McCue, of Flipboard.

He will then travel to Portola Valley for a 6:30 p.m. dinner and  discussion at the home of venture capitalist Vinod Khosla and his wife Neeru.

Sens. Charles Schumer, D-N.Y., and Michael Bennet, D-Colo., are  also expected to attend both events, as party leaders continue to solicit support from the wealthy enclaves of Silicon Valley.

Tickets for the dinner cost $32,400 per person, and tickets for  the reception start at $2,500, according to the invitation.
